Indian Point Siren Test
Entergy plans to test one of its new sirens in Cortlandt on Thursday May 10.
The siren will sound at full volume for approximately four minutes, between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. No response on the part of the public is necessary.
Residents should be aware that these sirens do NOT sound like the current sirens. Westchester County officials will use the current siren system to alert the public during an emergency at Indian Point until the new siren system is completed and tested later this spring.
In an actual emergency, all the current sirens would sound at full volume for four minutes. Sirens are not a signal to evacuate; but rather alert the public to tune to their local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or TV station for important information.
